What Happens When You Do Pass Plus Training?
Pass Plus training must last for a minimum of 6 hours and there are 6 modules to cover. These include:
- Driving in and around your local town
- Driving in all weather conditions
- Driving on rural roads
- Driving at night time
- Driving on a dual carriageway
- Driving on the motorway
All of these modules should be undertaken as practical sessions, although it is possible that some may need to be theory based due to local conditions. It is expected that you would spend a minimum of 5.5 hours driving.
Although there won’t be a test to take at the end of the sessions, you will be continually assessed during the course of the exercises. In order to pass, you will need to meet the required standards in all of the modules.
After you have successfully completed your training, you will be sent a Pass Plus certificate. You will need the information supplied on this to input when you are applying for car insurance.
If you need to find out anymore information, you can get in contact with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (also known as the DSVA) Pass Plus team and they will be happy to give you more information. You can reach them on the phone or by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org. The service is open Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm.
How Do You Get A Discount On Your Car Insurance Through Pass Plus?
After fully completing you Pass Plus training, you may find that you can get a discount on the amount you have to pay for your car insurance. In order to do this, you will need to have your Pass Plus certificate. You will need to check with your insurer if you are able to get a discount if you completed your practical driving test over a year ago, as this varies by company.
How much discount you get changes depending on the insurance company and it is not a requirement for all companies to give discounts to those who have done Pass Plus. You may be able to save your discount for up to 2 years if you don’t currently have a car, but you will have to clarify this with your insurance company.
